Og-winners by symonxThe winners of @MagiciansSYFY Fan Art Contest have been chosen! See who the judges picked and browse the other entries. #TheMagicians #ItsAFanThing

Create artwork celebrating The Magicians in anticipation of the Season 4 premiere!

Have you ever wished magic were real?Graduate student Quentin Coldwater did, and his wish came true. But that's just the beginning of the story.

__

SYFY's The Magicians follows a group of young magicians, who perfected their craft at Brakebills University, as they discover the consequences and dangers of the mythical world they've become a part of.

The first three seasons have been a roller coaster of triumphs, failures, and emotions with more to come in Season 4. To honor the next chapter in this grand saga, SYFY invites you to create artwork that celebrates the story up to this point. Choose anything from beloved characters, key magical moments, and mystical objects or locations.

First, Second, and Third Place winners will be chosen by a panel of judges including The Magicians Executive Producers and Co-Creators, Sera Gamble and John McNamara.

How To Enter

I just looked at the prizes listed on the contest page and there must be an error with what they have posted for the 2nd prize. It is listed as $4000 USD and with a 6-month membership, but I believe it is supposed to be $2000 because they listed an ARV of all prizes totaling $7990. Or maybe the issue is with the ARV total.

It says $2,000 for second prize on the page and in the official rules for me, can you let me know where you're seeing $4,000?

It's been corrected.  They made the edit to the webpage and now after refreshing my cache in the browser, it appears correctly as $2,000.

Needs more detail, definition and background, seems kinda rushed, especially with that stag. Good anatomy and good try though. Try watching a few tutorials to learn the tips and tricks of how to make a good picture. All the best

A question in case any staff or volunteers/etc are still looking. The rules say that a potential winner needs to be able to receive mail and respond to it, and if it's returned as undeliverable or missed the prize is forfeit. I can't find ANYWHERE in my Deviantart information where physical address information is stored. Where is it? Will I be notified on DA first and asked for an address privately? I want to make sure that's sorted out before that could potentially be an issue.

You will most likely be contacted privately to let them know your address of you are selected as one of the winners.
